RumBum.com to Host the Live Stream of the Lollapalooza Music Festival

OASIS CONCERT MANCHESTER 2009 7On the weekend of August 7 tens of thousands of music lovers will descend upon Chicago’s Grant Park for the legendary Lollapalooza Music Festival. For those who can’t make it to the windy city, RumBum.com will broadcast the best of the fest live from Chicago.

And this one should be good. Lollapalooza will have eight stages playing host to more than 100 bands and DJs ranging from the obscure to the established. Andrew Bird will be there and so will Of Montreal, Kings of Leon, Ben Folds, Depeche Mode, TV on the Radio, Animal Collective, Arctic Monkeys, Neko Case, Lou Reed, The Killers, and of course, Jane’s Addiction.

RumBum.com will be doing it the same way they always do – broadcasting the live stream, interviewing the bands, photographing the shows and sending updates from the ground – so that viewers at home can get closer to all the festival action.

RumBum.com has been doing it all summer, starting with the ROTHBURY Music Festival, in Rothbury, MI and then onto the Mile High Music Festival in Denver, CO, and to the All Points West Music Festival in New Jersey’s Liberty State Park. And they’re looking forward to doing it again at Lollapalooza.

“The entire Rum Bum team has been having a great time this summer, traveling to some of the country’s best music festivals and capturing all of the excitement for viewers at home,” says Luis Bacardi, the original Rum Bum and creator of RumBum.com. “Lollapalooza is one of the biggest festivals there is, so we’re very excited to have the opportunity to broadcast the live stream.”

After Lollapalooza, RumBum.com will finish out the festival season in Austin, Texas with the broadcast of the live stream for the Austin City Limits Music Festival, October 2-4.
